Western Saddlery

Anyone know anything about this brand? I know its not some amazing brand but I'm looking for a barrel saddle that is not too expensive but not complete crap. I just found this one on craigslist that is "western saddlery" if I can't find anything I'll probably get a Dakota saddle..I've heard good things about them and not very expensive.

Thanks!

There are lots of smaller brands out there, just shop around until you see saddles you generally like that have good reviews.

Western Saddlery is junk! I was "given" one at an auction. I hadn't looked the saddle over before the auction and could only look at it from my seat in the audience. When no one was bidding on it, I picked it up for next to nothing. That was four years ago, it still has yet to be on one of my horses. I have tried to give it away a few times and people won't take it. It does nothing more then take up useful space in my tack shed. I have nothing good to say about that brand, they are cheap and poorly built.

I agree with Toymanator. All the ones I have seen were mexican made pieces of crap.

If you're looking for something good quality that isn't too expensive, I would suggest Corriente Saddle Co. They are affordable, great working quality, and customizable.

I really think we should be getting kickbacks for mentioning them so often here.

LOL, no kidding. I wonder if I give them a list of links where I've recommended them if they would give me a free saddle...or at least a huge discount.

They should! I was going to post the link but when I got back you had already done it! My saddle is all worn out but it came about it honestly enough and I think I got a pretty good saddle for the price. Now the price is about the same but the quality and options have improved.

I agree I think they should sponsor the horseforum and give a discount to all members for how often we recommend them. I have had my Corriente saddle for a few months now. If you are looking for a new saddle it is one of the best bargains out there. I got the name of our ranch stamped on the back of the cantle on mine for a few extra bucks. That alone is worth it to me, I am such a better rider because I have a cool "custom" saddle... On my third ride with it we were up in the foothills of our ranch. I got off to work on a fence, the horse I was riding was young. We had been riding for a few hours and it was all sweated up, it shook and the saddle, because it was loose slipped underneath the horse and spooked it. The horse took off down a very steep hill crashing through brush. The horse tripped and rolled 15-20 feet and landed in an oak tree, with its hoof caught in the stirrup. And the saddle pinned beneath the horse. It was quite a scene! Luckily I was able to slip the horses leg out of the stirrup, unhook the cinches and slide the saddle underneath the horse. I will be honest after finding out the horse was ok I was ticked that my new saddle would be all scratched up if not broken. I got the horse back up, checked it for injuries. Besides a few minor scratches on the legs and a gash behind its ear the horse was just rattled. I then checked the saddle, after dusting it off it had two scratches on it and some rocks stuck in the stitching. It adds character to the saddle, and makes a good story. We saddled up and rode home... One more vote for a Corriente saddle, can I get my kickback now?
